In just a few hours the South Holland Centre in Spalding will be hosting the first-ever Lincolnshire Free Press and Spalding Guardian Education Awards.
Dozens of entries for the 12 categories have been received from primary and secondary schools in South Holland, Bourne, the Deepings and south of Boston.
Organised in association with Duncan and Toplis Chartered Accountants and Business Advisers, the panel of judges includes South Holland and the Deepings MP John Hayes, community policing inspector for South Holland Insp Jim Tyner, retired primary school headteacher Heather Beeken and retired PE teacher Margaret Wright.
Jeremy Ransome, editor of the Spalding Guardian and Free Press, said: “We’ve been overwhelmed with the response to our first-ever Education Awards.
“The young people of South Lincolnsire are our hope for the future and those responsible for their education deserve to be honoured.
“We’d like to thank everyone who has helped make tonight possible and look forward to celebrating with the winners.”
The ceremony starts at 6.30pm and we will be tweeting the winners @LincsFreePress. For full results and pictures, see Tuesday’s Free Press.
